So I can't use the app to edit because I need to grant permission for the position to use the camera. OK, fine. Then it says it detected a screen overlay and therefore I can't use the app unless I turn it off. It doesn't tell me which one, I'm supposed to turn off ALL of my other apps to be able to filter a picture? Get lost.
I felt the need to update my review since my love for it has waned a little. There was the terrible UI update, which thankfully has been walked back some. When viewing photos in the app they appear at a much lower resolution than they really are, which is problematic. For example a photo could appear a bit soft, so you sharpen it, then export to IG to find that the image is much too sharp there. Finally, the iOS version has received RAW support and Android has not, even though Android has had RAW support for years. I thought the days of iOS bias were fading (especially with well known apps) but it seems I was wrong.
A feature X is missing is a permanent link to the store. Given the plethora of filters, being able to read the short description and suggestions for their uses is extremely useful and sorely missed as is. Further, prior to X I had purchased all filters. The editing is what brought me to the app and has earned the VSCO team my money. Not being able to launch directly to photo selection for editing is truly baffling and cumbersome.
This used to be my favorite go to app for photo editing. The interface is terrible now, not user friendly at all and the app constantly lags. Really disappointed in the "update."
The user interface wasn't the most helpful before the major change and now it's just a maze trying to get anywhere and makes me want to abandon it if it wasn't for the filter I already bought...
Lack of features and slow update for Android user, confusing new UI, bugs on filter purchase sections... Unorganized version of VSCO are given to us Android user... Thanx..
